After the exertion of the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival, the cartoonists are now acclimatising to normal life. As usual, the event was covered by Team Bloghorn — Matt Buck, Alex Hughes and Royston Robertson. You can catch a taste of it by looking at the #shrews11 hashtag on Twitter but there will be more to come here in due course. For now, here’s a great gallery of photos, courtesy of Timothy King of Discover Shropshire.
